Help me find a vocal sample from an electro swing tune.

Does anyone know where the vocal sample from this song comes from? The song title mentions Bing Crosby but I don't think the first speaker is Bing at all. Is it from a movie? a song? help!

This unfavorable mention from a Crosby fan club confirms its Crosby. The original is "Mister Crosby and Mister Mercer"

The other person is Johnny Mercer. They performed this together a lot.

This isn't the same performance the sample is taken from but it's the same song and performers.

Oh yes, vacapinta reminds me. The song is called "Mr Gallagher and Mr Shean," and yes, Crosby and Mercer performed it with the title "Mr Crosby and Mr Mercer."

Is this version of "Mr. Crosby and Mr. Mercer" closer? (Skip to the music.)

Excellent answers everybody. I actually wanted to get hold of the vocal without the yucky electro nonsense over the top of it so I'm now in great shape. Thanks a lot.
